Seoul Global Center is running a competition for tech-based start-up ideas.

The top three entries will get a year’s use of one of the center’s incubation offices, support for a start-up visa, business coaching and professional business consulting.

Entries that make it through the preliminary round will be given points toward a start-up visa, mentoring and priority for the center’s business start-up course.

The competition organizers are looking for business ideas in tech-based manufacturing or services offered using information and communications technology.

The preliminary round will involve a short presentation on June 27, after which 10 entries will go on to receive mentoring from July 7-Aug. 31. At the end of the mentoring period, there will be another presentation round, after which the top three entries will be chosen.

Entries close Monday. For details on how to enter, visit
